“We are just waiting for the very last documents but I confirm that he will return to Milan.”
Beckham moved to the San Siro during the Major League Soccer off-season last January, initially on a three-month loan deal, but impressed so much his stay was extended until the end of the Serie A season
Milan boss Leonardo was delighted by the news of Beckham’s return.
“I consider Beckham as if he had always been here because he has only been away for six months,” he said.
“In any case he will be a player that will contribute a lot, not only on the pitch but also inside the group, as the players like him infinitely.”
